In order to watch Netflix on your TV you need three things (none of which involve Uverse):

  1. Access to Netflix.  There may be an app on your Smart TV.  Check your owners manual with how to access apps.  If there is no app, you'll need a Roku or other device that provides the app.
  2. Internet access.  Check your TV manual for instructions for instruc)tions on how to set up your TV for internet access.
  3. A subscription to Netflix.

 

Uverse TV has nothing to do with Netflix.

When you're in your 60s & people ask you to do something, you just say "No".  No reason.  No excuse.  No explanation.  I can't wait for my 70s.  I don't think I'll even answer.   -  Jerry Seinfeld

With uverse?  You don't!  Netflix is an internet subscription service so you need to figure out how to get your smart tv's internet connection to access it.  Never had netflix so I don't know what you have to do in that setup.   But for the tv's internet connection itself you should read your tv's user manual on how to do that  if you haven't already done so.  These connections usually provide for a etherent wired connection and/or a wifi connection. 

 

For the wired connection use an ethernet connection and plug it into one of the yellow etherent ports on the back of the gateway.  Connect the other end to the tv's ethernet port.  For wifi set the tv's network settings to use the gateway's ssid (network name) and password shown on a label stuck to the side of your gateway.

I've feel like I've seen similar posts a few times.

 

Do some providers have a built-in Netflix feature?

You should have ten Netflix app on your smart TV.  Go to computer and go to Netflix.com and sign up and choose the plan you want and set up your password then go back to the TV and sign in to Netflix with your Netflix ID and Password.  It should remember your password and happy viewing.
